I saw Dr.Castro in August in Langhorne PA. My husband sees another doctor in the same practice and has been very satisfied with his care for years. The office is impressive, the receptionists are friendly and helpful. The office is clean. The nurse was wonderful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Dr. Castro was also extremely knowledgeable, kind, and he listened to my concerns. I am very glad I made the switch.

Very caring and takes his time to listen and evaluate. Since he is a one person practice he gives his cell number. Both me and my husband have been to him and have been very very satisfied with his diagnosis EVERY single time.

If you want to find an old-fashioned style doctor, who doesn't look at the clock to rush you through in order to make the most money for the day, that's Dr. Castro. He's experienced, knowledgeable, and certainly well-trained and, importantly, he will LISTEN to you. I'd love all my doctors to be like him!!! I'd go to the North Pole to see him.
